FOURTH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUMON 3-D ANALYSIS OF HUMAN MOVEMENT
The International Symposium on 3-D Analysis of Human Movement
is a scientific and technical forum for investigators of human
motion, whether their work is applied to the study of musculo
-skeletal disability or disease, sport and elite performance, or
basic studies of biomechanics. By generating further communication
and contact between investigators in diverse areas, this meeting
encourages discussions to cross the boundaries between scientific
disciplines and specialities. The Symposium will be directed at
sharing information and results relating to philosophies for solving
problems of measurement and analysis, rather than only delivering
recent research study findings.

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM
The conference is spanned over three days. There will be
keynote speakers in addition to oral presentations. Additional
papers will be accepted in the form of poster presentation and a Hyde
Park Speakers' Corner is also planned.

1. KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
Jorges ANGELES McGill University, Montreal, Canada
Robotics

Anatol FELDMAN Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, Canada
Modelling

David GUIRAUD INSERM, Montpellier, France
Neuro network modelling

Hans-Gerd MAAS ETH Zurich, Switzerland
Photogrammetry

Jocelyne TROCCAZ Universite Joseph Fourier, Grenoble, France
Virtual reality

Kit VAUGHAN Cape Town, South Africa
Biomechanics


2. THEMES
Data capture: New instrumentation, and specific hardware, accuracy
and precision of various reconstruction techniques, interpolation
and calibration, lens distortion correction, etc.
Joint motion: Location of markers, relation between external
reference markers and joint movements, definition of local and
global coordinate systems.
Modelling: 3-D kinematic and kinetic/dynamic joint models,
finite element techniques, estimation of internal forces,
model validation and sensitivity analysis.
3-D Representation: Computer-aided-graphic techniques,
animations, simulation, and virtual reality applied to
human movement.
3-D Applications and interpretation: 3-D variables used in the
analysis of human movement and their relation to conventional
2-D parameters.

3. SUBMISSION
The four-page manuscript is intended to be a complete
mini-paper with figures and references. Each submission is to
represent original work that has notbeen reported elsewhere.
The paper may report significant results of current pilot studies
that may be leading to a journal publication, and as such we do not
claim any copyright priviliges.

All papers are to be up to FOUR 8 1/2" by 11" or A4 pages in
length. Title of paper, in capital letters, must be centred on the
first page at about 2cm from the top. The character must be of 10
points Times type or equivalent and single spaced. This is an
example. Name of author and co-authors, affiliation and address
should be beneath each name, leaving a line in between. The text
is to be written at about 7cm from the top of the first page and
2,5cm on the others. It must be within two columns 8cm wide and
separated by a 1,5cm space leaving an equal margin on each side.
Indent beginning of each papagraph by 4 spaces. Text must be
justified to use maximum column width. Text ends 2,5cm from the
bottom. Left justify and underline each heading in the column and
use capital letters with one space above each heading. Figures
may be full width if necessary. SI units are to be employed.
The manuscript will be reproduced exactly as submitted so new
black ribbon or laser quality are best.

Send the original and THREE copies of the manuscipt to
Professor Jean-Pierre BLANCHI, Grenoble, France. It must
be postmarked before March 15th, 1996. The manuscript will
be published in the proceedings of the Symposium.

4. PUBLICATION
About 15 abtracts from the proceedings will be selelected
by the Scientific Committee. The authors will be asked to
submit a full length paper to be reviewed before publication
in the journal Human Movement Science.

5. DEADLINES
Abstract submission: March 15th, 1996
Notification to authors: May 1st, 1996
Early bird registration: May 15th, 1996

TECHNICAL PROGRAM
As a complement to the scientific program, manufacturers
of data capture systems will be given time during the meeting
to inform the participants about their products. THERE
WILL BE NO EXIBITS. Those wishing to participate in the
Technical Program are asked to communicate with the
Permanent Secretariat.

LODGING
The 3-D meeting will be held at Hotel President, 11 rue
